<Seek> A project by Lia and MCarvalhais for the AEC facade installation Commissioned by the Ars Electronica Center, 2004 download Shockwave
<Seek> is built in two interconnected parts: crossing the online experiences and the facade piece projected in Linz, Austria.

Autonomous elements in the facade are occasionally locked to the movement of corresponding objects in a piece being accessed online. The facade thus lingers on the data gathered from one or more running instances of the online piece, modeling its behaviors from this data.

Although outputting different visible results, both pieces — online and facade — are in reality separate halves of the same piece, built on the same algorithms, therefore coexisting naturally.

<Seek> was opened on June 15th 2004.
